We report the discovery of a group of galaxies at redshift 2.38. We imaged about 10% of a claimed supercluster of QSO absorption-lines at z=2.38 (Francis & Hewett 1993). In this small field (2 arcmin radius) we detect two Ly-alpha emitting galaxies. The discovery of two such galaxies in our tiny field supports Francis & Hewett's interpretation of the absorption-line supercluster as a high redshift "Great Wall". One of the Ly-alpha galaxies lies 22 arcsec from a background QSO, and may...[Show more]
